Stupid question but you said on the burping birds ask that birds exploding from rice was a myth, does that mean throwing rice at weddings Is okay?
It’s not a stupid question at all. This myth is so pervasive that congressional bills have been attempted in its defense.
To put it simply though, the myth has absolutely no scientific backing.
Steven Sibley. The same Sibley whose name is attached to The Cornell Lab of Ornithology and bird guides in all the book stores across the nation had this to say about the myth in 1988 when a columnist reported the myth as fact.
There is absolutely no truth to the belief that rice (even instant) can kill birds. This rumor received publicity because of a bill introduced into the Connecticut legislature in 1985 by Mae Schmidle.
This wild story resulted in frightening thousands of brides into putting birdseed in little tulle and chiffon bags so the guests wouldn’t throw rice and “kill the birds.”
Rice is no threat to birds. It must be boiled before it will expand. Furthermore, all the food that birds swallow is ground up by powerful muscles and grit in their gizzards. Many birds love rice, as any frustrated rice farmer will tell you.
I hope you will print this information in your column and put an end to this myth. In the meantime, keep throwing rice, folks. Tradition will be served and the birds will eat well and be healthy.

i just want you to feel free. i want you to always have the wind to your back. i want it to be easy for you to relax. let your mind fade to black. you’re sitting stoned on the bare mattress on your floor. listening to new music discovered weekly. finding songs you love so much you listen to them throughout the day on repeat. adventuring through fields of gold. sunsets chased with just you and the seagulls. tides rise to remind you what we really are inside. just like the ocean. built up by salt and water. you deserve love. the real deal you were always promised. wedding bells and rice. smiling big from under that wedding altar.
Honestly, I haven’t any clue why y’all put up with my blog and my snarky ‘Life In Chikago posts’ but I appreciate it more than any of you know. To celebrate reaching 300 followers, I want to do another giveaway.

The beautiful Pointilleux cousins Celeste and Cosmique.
While Cosmique Pointilleux is pleased to announce her engagement to Iefan Rice, a Beater on the Welsh national Quidditch team, Celeste remains the heir of the Pointilleux family and will likely soon take over managing the family’s business investments (largely in potions) from her mother.
The Pointilleux family is distantly related to the Malfoy family of Britain–Abraxas Malfoy’s aunt, Paetina Malfoy, married into the Pointilleux family, making Celeste and Cosmique Draco Malfoy’s third cousins. As the Pointilleux-Rice wedding is expected to be the greatest event in the European pureblood circuit this year, it is almost certain that the Malfoys will attend the wedding in October.
once my sims had a wedding. and this old man showed up, because they were at the park. and people go to the park. it’s a thing that happens. but this old man, this poor poor sweet old man, he threw rice, as congratulations at the end. he was so happy, he was cheering and throwing rice. the wedding finished. he was still throwing rice. days later, i went back to the park. there he was, stuck in his infinite hell of joyful rice throwing. doomed to repeat the same rice throwing actions over and over for all his life. i tried the resetsim cheat, put the poor guy out of his misery. it didn’t work. this poor, innocent old man, stuck forever in a never ending gesture of congratulations for the happy couple.
